"This bench is incredibly comfortable!"
Jennifer M., Iowa City, IA
These are one of a kind hand-crafted meditation benches. My benches are made from locally recycled hardwood and typically have a stone inset or inlay design on one side. Each bench is unique. There is a hand-hold in the top for ease of carrying. Sides are joined to top using a either a locking miter joint or a half-blind dovetail joint. The benches are created with loving care in my wood shop, MacB Woodworking, where I am dedicated to fine woodworking. A thick detachable cushion is included that enables the meditator to remain quite comfortable for long meditations. For added comfort, use the bench with a zabuton or folded blanket underneath with the meditator's feet hanging off the back.
